pttd and tendonitis of achilles tendond

Posted by sue s. on 4/10/03 at 06:31 (115826)

I am 55 years old and have pttd and tendonitis of achilles tendon. I have had his problem since Dec. In Jan. I had an mri that said I have a chronic partial tear in my posterior tibial tendon and tendonitis in my achilles tendon. I have had an ankle brace (6 weeks) and physical therapy, and orthotics for a month. My ankle and foot starts to swell and hurts after the least amount of walking. My life has come to a stand still. I am even being treated for depression because of it. What can I expect in the future with this ailment? Will surgery help?
